SKINLESS To Release New Studio Album In Early 2006

SKINLESS guitarist Noah Carpenter has issued the following update:

"SKINLESS would like to say thanks to DEICIDE, IMMOLATION, DESPISED ICON, WITH PASSION and their crews for a great tour, and probably the best tour SKINLESS has ever been a part of. Also a huge thanks to all of our fans who came out to support us. You bastards in NYC, Quebec City, Montreal, Toronto and Los Angeles were especially fucking crazy. If we didn't make it through your area, please be patient, we'll get to ya.

"Right now we are concentrating on writing the new album. Our main goal is the write the heaviest SKINLESS material ever. If everything goes as planned we'll be in the studio by the end of 2005 to set SKINLESS up for a spring 2006 release through Relapse Records, followed by extensive touring. We do not yet have a title for the forthcoming album but some song titles are 'Trample The Weak, Hurdle the Dead', 'Execution Of Reason', 'Sycophant', and 'Overlord'. This album will delve deeply into themes and images of warfare, and possibly a history lesson or two.

"We'll be doing a few small excursions in the Northeast U.S.A, Mexico, and Eastern Canada later this year, dates will be posted as they are confirmed.

"'Gut Pumping Hits' is due to be released by Stepup Productions at the end of 2005. This combo CD/DVD package will include all SKINLESS demo recordings from 1992-1997, as well as the 'Buzzed And Brutal' VHS now on DVD (with bonus material).

"That's about all for now. METAL!!!"

SKINLESS last January announced the addition of singer Jason Keyser (DETRIMENT) to the group's ranks. Keyser, brother of SKINLESS bassist Joe Keyser, joined the band as the replacement for longtime vocalist Sherwood Webber, who left the group in November 2004 in order "to pursue other interests."
